14.. I suck

| | Comments (3)

I can't even do the simplest of perl programming. I can't for the life of me work out why almost identical code will work in one situation, but behave completely differently in another. Just figured out one part of it. Needed a slosh in the right place (as opposed to a slash). flipping

That and a madhouse day patching servers like crazy and setting up info so that staff can do it for themselves also. http://www.microsoft.com/security/security_bulletins/ms03-026.asp has the potential to criple half (more than half actually) of the computers attached to the internet. So long as our servers are ok, then I can sit back and laugh at the ensuing chaos.

And there's only 14 days to go. Haven't decided what I want to do yet. Whatever I do, I'm sure only half a dozen people would turn up.

/me goes off to continue being depressed in private.

Why would you want to do that? What's the fun in losing money? I've never understood that! I've got enough problems trying to deal with what little I've got...why throw any of it away unecessarily?

This will mark only the second time in my life I've been gambling. The first time I cleared over 200 American dollars from a 20 dollar investment. Will I be lucky twice? Will I strike it (even moderately) rich? Probably not, but the thrill of the chase is what I seek.
